Thanksgiving Marathons To Feast On
Thanksgiving. The time for family, food and endless amounts of television. I love Thanksgiving because as I come down from my food coma, I can unwind on the couch and watch any one of the zillion marathons that run that weekend. Here are some that might whet your appetite.
Awkward – MTV – Friday 9am – 10pm. MTV is going to run both seasons of this hilarious show.
James Bond Movie Marathon – Syfy – Midnight Thursday – 5:30am Saturday. They do this marathon every year and I always catch at least 3 Bond movies during this time. Love them.
Beverly Hills 90210 – SoapNet – Friday 8pm – 1am. This 5 hour marathon is going to focus on the roller coaster that was Kelly and Dylan’s relationship, starting with the episode where Kelly and Dylan hooked up while Brenda was away in Paris.
Friday Night Lights – ESPN Classic – Friday 1 – 11pm. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Anyone who reads even a bit of this blog knows I STAN HARD for this show. ESPN is airing Season 5, the last season, of the show. Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Loose.
Castle – TNT – Thursday 10am – 11pm. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! TNT just started airing Castle in syndication and they are doing a nice marathon of season 2. This is a great opportunity to check out some of the early Caskett (Castle & Beckett) tension and what makes this show so much fun to watch.
Breaking Amish – TLC – Thursday 11am-9pm. Never watched this show but I heard it’s good so marathon here I come.
General Hospital – SoapNet – Thursday 7pm-12am. SoapNet is calling their 5 hour marathon “Quartermania.” They will be airing Thanksgiving episodes that center on those crazy Quartermaines. This will be a nice way to look back at the better years of the show.
Oprah’s Next Chapter – OWN – Sunday 2-10pm. Eight episodes of Next Chapter featuring Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report), Kelsey Grammer (Boss), Usher, Fergie, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Hudson before the new episode with Justin Bieber at 9pm/8c.
The First 48 – A&E – Thursday 3pm – Friday 4am. If you really want to waste the day away put on an episode of this gem and you will never leave the couch. I always have to cautious with this show because before I know it I’ve been sucked in.
Law & Order: SVU – USA – Saturday 12pm – 2am. No weekend is complete without an SVU marathon. They usually run this for a couple of hours on Sundays but this weekend they start a day early. Be sure to catch-all the old Benson and Stabler episodes.
Fringe – Science – Friday 9:30am – Saturday 3am; Saturday 10am – Sunday 3am. With this show ending its run on FOX this January, relive all the memorable moments from the beginning of the series. I am going to be all over this one.

What To Watch: October 10
9/8c – Arrow – CW – Series Premiere. After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell; Hung, Private Practice) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. Back in Starling City, Oliver slowly reconnects with those closest to him, his devoted mother Moira (Susanna Thompson; Cold Case, Kings), beloved sister Thea (Willa Holland; Gossip Girl, The O.C.), and best friend Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell; Pan Am), but struggles with his ex-girlfriend Dinah “Laurel” Lance (Katie Cassidy; Gossip Girl, Melrose Place), who blames him for her sister’s death. Oliver has brought back many new skills from his time on the island and despite the watchful eye of his new bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey; Dexter, Blue Bloods), Oliver manages to secretly create the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family and fight the ills of society. As Arrow, Oliver will atone for the past sins of his family while he searches for the personal redemption he needs.
10/9c – Chicago Fire – NBC – Series Premiere. When a fire claims one of their own, there’s plenty of guilt and blame to go around. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer; House), in charge of the Truck, tries to carry on, but butts heads with the brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney; The Vampire Diaires) of the Rescue Squad – and each blames the other for their fallen team member. Adding to the turmoil, Casey, unbeknownst to his colleagues, is in the midst of a separation from Hallie (Teri Reeves, Three Rivers).
10/9c – Nashville – ABC – Series Premiere. Chart-topping Rayna James (Connie Britton; Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story) is a country legend who’s had a career any singer would envy, though lately her popularity is starting to wane. Fans still line up to get her autograph, but she’s not packing the arenas like she used to. Rayna’s record label thinks a concert tour, opening for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere; Heroes, Guiding Light), the young and sexy future of country music, is just what Rayna needs. But scheming Juliette can’t wait to steal Rayna’s spotlight. Sharing a stage with that disrespectful, untalented, little vixen is the last thing Rayna wants to do, which sets up a power struggle for popularity.
What To Watch: September 17
Gosh I love this season. Here is what is premiering tonight.
8/7c – FOX – Bones – Season 8 Premiere. Having been accused of murder, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is on the run from the FBI, with help from her father Max (Ryan O’Neal). Booth (David Boreanaz) and the Jeffersonian team are convinced evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) has manipulated key evidence in the case to pinpoint Brennan as the prime suspect. Then, an anonymous tip leads the team to the remains of a high school guidance counselor that may hold the key to proving Brennan’s innocence.
9/8c – FOX – The Mob Doctor – Series Premiere. Dr. Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro; My Boys), a top resident at Chicago’s Roosevelt Medical Center who is indebted to the mafia, saving lives isn’t her only concern. In this fast-paced medical drama, Dr. Devlin is faced with the intense demands of being a surgeon and working “off book” for the mafia men she once despised. As she tries to heed the demands of these two conflicting worlds, the former head of the Southside mob, Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe; Boardwalk Empire), stands by her, while her boss at Roosevelt Medical and Chief of Surgery, Dr. Stafford White (Zeljko Ivanek; Damages, The Event), and her blue-blooded boyfriend (Zach Gilford; Friday Night Lights) remain unaware of her “other” life, and the moral dilemma in which she finds herself. I don’t have any feelings about this show really. We’ll see if this is any good. I’ll give it my requisite 3 episodes to hook me.
10/9c – LOGO – Be Good Johnny Weir – Season 2 Premiere. This season goes beyond the ice rink and dive deeper into Johnny’s work and personal life as he balances his immense drive for the ultimate prize in the skating world with his growing ambition to branch out into various entertainment endeavors. Never a stranger to taking big risks to win big, Johnny makes a foray into the music business with his first single, publishes a book, dabbles in a fashion line and works to launch his own ice show spectacular. With the support of his long-time manager, coach and friends, Johnny learns that sometimes even the most driven superstar will face hiccups on the road to success. Viewers will also be privy to a never-before-seen private side of Johnny as he meets the love of his life and navigates the pressures of nurturing a budding romance while facing the pressures of celebrity.
10/9c – NBC – Revolution – Series Premiere. This show is about a family that struggles to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out forever. The show is from executive producer, J.J Abrams (Mission Impossible III, Alias), whom I love and has done some of my favorite shows and movies. This show is looking to be the next Lost. We’ll see how this is. I am tired of shows trying to be the next Lost. I mean if it’s good it will be good and if not then it’ll be cancelled. Sadly it’s on NBC and threat of cancellation is a lot more than on another network.
The 63rd Annual Emmy awards air tonight on FOX and if you know me, you know I love award shows.I especially love the Emmys because they are all about television and fashion, but they also signify the official beginning of the fall tv season.So many of my people and shows got nominated finally (Friday Night Lights, Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler for Friday Night Lights, Timothy Olyphant for Justified) and so I’m excited to see if they win or if the academy decides to just give it to the same ol’ people (I’m looking at you John Hamm).Tune in to the show tonight at 8/7c on FOX.
